Mississagi Provincial Park, north of Elliot Lake, is now headed in a new direction. The park is now open for business but it’s being staffed and operated by the city instead of the province. Last year the Liberal government announced several park closures in Northern Ontario because of low usage. However the province later opted for a one year pilot project where Elliot Lake takes over the park. The goal is to increase the number of visitors and revenue. However if there's a loss, the city and not the province, takes the hit.
